Pierre Simson, a good friend of Partners in Faith, who lectures in Scripture in Sion Hill College recently told us of a book he had come across on Jesus. "It's the best book I have ever read on the subject" he said. And coming from someone who has lectured on the subject for many years and still speaks to packed audiences we thought that was high praise indeed. Having read through it ourselves now we can heartily agree. It is  a classic but very readable work on the subject.

 

What Pagola manages to do very successfully and in a very readable way is to recreate the world of Palestine at the time of Jesus. Based on the latest scholarship and research in the area of historical and scriptural criticism Pagola uncovers again for us in the 21st century the culture of empire which surrounded the first preaching of the 'Good News' to the poor.
